What is a Polar Plunge?

As the name implies, a Polar Plunge is a winter fundraising event whereby individuals have the “honour” of bravely jumping into freezing cold waters in the middle of the bitter Saskatchewan winter. They are able to participate by securing donations from friends, family members, co-workers, local businesses, or their community. It’s a great way for everyone—individuals, organizations, and businesses—to get involved in support of Special Olympics and show winter who’s boss.

How Does the Polar Plunge Raise Money?

Plungers will either pay the registration fee or raise the minimum requirement to be able to take part in the Plunge. Incentives will be given to Plungers based on how much money they raise in donations. Costumes are strongly encouraged!

   1. "Take the Plunge" and sign up online
